MRS starts into the season 2012!
Dubai. As in the last year, the MRS Team will also start into its racing season with the 24 hours race of Dubai, which is meanwhile established as permanent feature in the international GT racing scene. At the, a bit more than 5 Km`s track, 74 competitors will participate, within a lot of actual GT3 cars from manufacturers like Porsche, BMW, Lamborghini, Ferrari and Mercedes just to name a few. The MRS Team will compete consequently with an endurance car from Porsche, the “smurfblue” Porsche GT3 R, where the team had an amazing appearance, winning the ADAC GT Masters race at the Austrian Red Bull Ring as a guest starter last year.
Also regarding the drivers line-up, MRS decides to an established team. Among the MRS Supercup Pilot, William Langhorne (USA), also MRS Pilot Philipp Eng (Austria) will sit behind the wheel of the 500 hp strong GT3 R. Supported by the German driver Klaus Frers, which has experience from long distance races with a Porsche RSR and the German Erwin Stueckle, for whom is a 24 hours race a very new experience, even that he is familiar with Porsche racing cars because of competing at the Porsche Sportscup.
Karsten Molitor (Teamchef): „We`re happy that our winter break doesn’t took so long, as every year at Christmas we`re getting a bit nervous looking forward to the upcoming season. As we have shown at the last race here in Dubai, that we were very competitive even though we had a couple of technical problems, we`re confident to fight for the podium this year. We`re looking forward for the race start at Friday afternoon.”
The race starts at Friday, 13th of January 2pm (UAE time) and can be followed on the homepage of the organizer www.24hdubai.com .
